GoDaddy is the epitome of scum for any online services provider.

What you looking for? Just domain registration and administration or hosting aswell?

Never trust them overly cheap hosts. I was with freezone and when I wanted to switch they Made it ridiculously difficult and refused to give me the code to switch. They only did it when I threatened legal action after abt 3 weeks of trying to get the code.

My advice is you get what u pay for so the more u pay, the better the service

why i use 123-reg so i can just switch up my nameservers for my domains in the cp while i run the hosting on a different provider.

On the subject of domains, how do people value them?

I wanted a registered domain, the owner has held it for 10 years and its just a forwarding site currently. Emailed him and the cheeky bugger said he is looking for offers of between $1-10k

Maybe it's me but that seems a bit optimistic?

I brought the co.uk variant for £200

There's one that I'm after, someone has registered but not done anything with it. What's the best way of contacting them and making an offer?

Do a WHOIS on the domain name (search google) should show who it is registered with, also maybe contact details.
